Boredom, RPGs 

There's a strange ennui that comes from knowing your multi-year campaign only has a few sessions left, but the regular meeting is cancelled this week.

Just... The plans shall wait. They have waited years, a week is nothing more.

I thought this instance had shutdown when I came back from this hiatus of mine, and joined up on another instance. It's striking how different the feed was over there.

In other news, I'm back.

Alright, fuck it let's do this. If you got a patreon, ko-fi, liberapay or whatever, reply with it and I will boost. Cannot promise donations, but I will use what reach I have to help if I can. Let's actually build that support network I was talking about earlier.

I encourage others to boost this status and all the posts that end up beneath it to get as wide a spread as possible.

Not sure if this will even work, but I feel like I should at least try.

Hey, I encountered this and thought you might get a kick out of it.
The guy not only ran every texture in game through DeepDream against a random image, but also shuffled every sound file, and music file.

rpg idea quarantine: magic as IT 

After hearing too many people say they're "not technical" (when "technical" people are just willing to read instructions, or click on labeled things to see what they do) it occurred to me that magic could work the same way.

You read the right books: it works.

"Oh, I don't know anything about magic."

) "Did you-- were you pointing the wand away from you?"

) "Did you try dispelling and then summoning it again?"

) "Did get the patch update scroll?"

rpg horror 

So, running a cypher system horror one shot, with possible expansions. The theme... A road trip that never ends, and just keeps delving deeper into weirdness.
Of course the players all make characters based on Scooby Doo...๐Ÿ˜ถ
